Adrian Dobre, General Manager, Klarwin @ Automotive Forum 2020: From our perspective, 2021 will be only step-forward in the field of autonomous cars
“We need to address this period as the new normal. We need to be pragmatic with these times and need to behave differently than before. At Klarwin, we have the role of supporting the automotive industry. Our main goals is to secure the continuity, through all our competencies. Within this year, we have enjoyed spending extra time on trainings, going deeper with the knowledge of trends, new products, searching and developing new lines of innovation in our technology field.
From our perspective, 2021 will not bring too much in terms of autonomous driving. It is a process on the run, however, not yet there. In terms of autonomous cars, 2021 will be a step-forward but not a phenomenon at a larger scale.
Also, the pressure of manufacturers to bring on the market affordable EVs will be tremendous in 2021, since the consumers will be eager to follow the trends of e-mobility but they will also face a certain financial depression. This means, they will be very attentive to prices and the manufacturers will need to address technology aspects that should save costs and bring an affordable e-car on the market. This competition will bring very interesting projects of innovative cost saving technologies. This is exactly what we do at Klarwin, we daily implement manufacturing technology to enable the cost-savings in the production.”
